If a series has a lot of episodes, I use "FileZilla" FTP. Click on the FTP link on the left side of the Archive page. This will take you to the FTP page. Copy and paste the page address into FileZilla. FileZilla will open the FTP page and show you all the episodes. Just drag and drop the files you want to download. FIleZilla does the rest.

Still, it will only download two at a time. If you drag 20 files to download( or however many) FileZilla will download all of them.

I hope this is helpful. If it's too basic, sorry about that.

I think this the right link:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla

Have there ever been any comments from Archive.org about discouraging or trying to prevent anything like this?

I have no problem with something that downloads only one file at a time, the point, to me, is being able to tell a program, "Download these files," then leave the computer and let it get what I've asked for without me having to click all the links.

In the FAQ, AI recommends FileZilla for FTP downloads. I think that's where I got the program.

Good luck!
